The following is a list of ways to try and get rich betting the Breeders Cup races in 2014. The Breeders Cup in 2014 is taking place at Santa Anita in Arcadia, California on October 31 and November 1, 2014.
To get rich betting on horse races, I believe one needs to win a lot of money for relatively small bets. Fortunately, the Breeders Cup offers bettors many different opportunities to try to win lots of money for small wagers.
Some lucky bettors are going to make a lot of money betting relatively small amounts of money at the Breeders Cup in 2014, and here’s how they are most likely going to do it. The odds are high that most people betting the Breeders Cup races this year will not get rich, bit it is possible to get rich betting the Breeders Cup races.
How to try and get rich betting the Breeders Cup horse races in 2014
Bet the Ultra Pick 6
On both Friday and Saturday, the Breeders Cup is offering Ultra Pick 6’s with guaranteed pool money. Friday’s pool has a $750,000 guarantee and for Saturday that rises to $2.5 million.
To win the Pick 6 you have to select the winners of the six designated races each day. It’s not an easy bet to win, but for a few bucks you could win a lot of money. Check out the prices paid at the Breeders Cup in the past for the pick 6 below. In each case that’s how much bettors won for a $2 winning ticket.
- 1999 – $3,058,138.60
- 2003 – $2,687,611.60
- 2009 – $1,838,305.20
- 2006 – $1,450,707.20
It’s possible to become a millionaire with just a $2 bet in the Breeders Cup if you can hit the pick 6. Why not take a try at that?
Bet the Breeders Cup Pick 5
The Breeders Cup is offering a .50 cent pick 5 bet on the first five races run on the card from Santa Anita each day. Last year, the Breeders Cup Pick 5 paid $23,665 for each winning .50 cent ticket on Saturday.
Bet the Pick 4
The Breeders Cup is offering three .50 cent minimum bet pick 4’s this year with big money pools guaranteed. On Friday, the late pick 4 (races 6-9) has a $1.5 million guaranteed pool.
On Saturday, the early pick 4 covering races 4-7 has a guaranteed pool of $1.5 million, and the late pick 4 (races 9-12) has a $3 million guarantee. To win these bets you have to pick four consecutive winners in the four designated races.
The payoffs can be excellent for pick 4 bets. The late pick 4 from last year’s Friday card paid a whopping $29,725 for each winning .50 cent ticket.
Bet the superfecta
The superfecta requires a bettor to pick the first four horses in a race in the exact order of finish. It’s a tough bet to hit, but superfectas can make you rich if you can hit one. And the Breeders Cup is offering .10 cent superfectas on all 13 races this year.
My philosophy betting .10 cent superfectas is to key the horse I think will win the race on top and liberally use many of the other horses in the race underneath. That way if I am right with my pick to win the race, I have an excellent chance to cash a very lucrative ticket. If I am wrong, I have not spent a fortune on the bet.
If you just want to gamble, use your birth date, street address, zip code, cell phone number or any other numbers that mean something to you. If you get lucky, you can get rich. In 1999, the winning superfecta combo of 6-9-4-12 in the Breeders Cup Classic paid $692,907 for each $1 winning bet.
Anyone living in Hirschhorn, Germany, Lyon – Rhone-alpes, France, or San Antonio, Mexico could have hit that bet using their 69412 zip code. Here’s a list of the highest paying superfectas in Breeders Cup history.
Bet the trifecta
To hit the trifecta you have to have the first three finishers in the race in exact order. An easier bet to hit than the superfecta, and it still can pay a lot for a very small wager.
In the 1999 Breeders Cup Classic, bettors who had the winning combo of 6-9-4 won $39,031.20 for each $2 trifecta bet. And the Breeders Cup is offering .50 cent trifectas for all 13 races in 2014. Here’s a list of the highest paying trifectas in Breeders Cup history.
Bet to win, place and show
Usually, I very rarely bet to place or show but the fields and betting pools are so large in the Breeders Cup races that I will often bet long shots across the board. My biggest Breeders cup win came in 2000 with Caressing, who paid $96 to win, $34.80 to place, and $15.80 to show when she won the Juvenile Fillies race.
With $5 across the board on Caressing, I collected $366.50 for a $15 bet. That did not make me rich, but it was a nice payoff. Other big Breeders Cup wins I’ve had are Desert Code ($317 for $15 bet), Anees ($237.50), and Cajun Beat ($196.50).
My philosophy for betting high odds horses in the Breeders Cup is simple. I bet high odds horses who go against the main flow of a race. If a race has a lot of early speed horses in it, I look for a high odds off the pace runner. If a race lacks early speed, I look for a high odds speed horse who will be near the pace or could even get loose on a easy lead and wire the field.
Here a list of the highest paying horses in Breeders Cup history. Good luck to all in the 2014 Breeders Cup!
